Barry Lyga Ø 8 SUMMARY

R and for Dear Old Dad Take Your Son to Work Day was year round Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could from the criminal's point of viewAnd now bodies are Seuel please Now I thought this book was really really good I would have happily handed out five stars except for the fact that I had the killer s identity figured out less than halfway through the book I feel very sad that Ms Dense seems to have been randomly replaced with Marple but thankfully this novel is about a lot than just solving the main mysteryI actually took longer to read this book than I tend to do and most of that time was spent on the first few chapters So I shall be issuing a warning to those who feel underwhelmed at first stick with this book it really does get better and better The problem was depraved individual that I am I felt the introduction to the story and characters to be really light I m the kind of reader who likes my mysteries dark and full of gore and psychopaths and Jasper Dent s character reminded me of a much smarter version of Cassel from White Cat I love Cassel but he never strikes me as a serious character and this is how I felt towards Jasper At firstBut it soon became apparent that Barry Lyga really knows how to balance light and dark in a way I m not even familiar with There was humour in this book and Jasper Dent was in many ways a regular teenage boy with a best friend and a girlfriend Since his dad was arrested he has lived with his grandmother a woman suffering from the effects of old age and a sometimes cruelly psychotic personality but this is all rather amusing instead of tragic However the author s ability to suddenly flip the switch between light hearted teen humour and really dark descriptions of murder and sociopathic tendencies had uite an effect on me It could have seemed silly and forced yet for me it just made it dramatic and disturbingPerhaps this is just me because I don t recall reading reviews that have picked up on this dark twistedness But I honestly thought there was something extremely horrifying and effective about the contrast between light and dark tones in the novel Jasper Dent is also a very complex character he has all kinds of conflicting emotions flying around inside him He is the kind of person who uestions his motives for everything is he helping someone because he wants to help them Or is he helping them for what he gets out of it If a person is brought up knowing only one way of life are they destined to follow that path Can they changeThere are a few problems I had with the story I don t believe the sheriff would really have been that understanding in a real life situation and I don t believe he wouldn t have been just a tad suspicious of Jasper in the beginning Also would that social worker really have been that concerned for a guy so close to eighteen who could obviously look after himself I m not sure they would haveThese things are very small matters that don t actually take anything away from the novel This is a seriously gripping story so you know what you should do read it The Wallace And Gromit A Close Shave Pop Up Book of viewAnd now bodies are Seuel please Now I

REVIEW å eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ø Barry Lyga

What if the world's worst serial killerwas your dadJasper Jazz Dent is a likable teenager A charmer one might sayBut he's also the son of the world's most infamous serial kille 45 stars Do you believe violent offenders are the product of nature or nurture In the case of 17 year old Jasper Jazz Dent he s got both factors working against him Not only is he the son of the country s most notorious serial killer but dear old daddy even forced him to watch those grisly crimes and sometimesI ve always been interested in how human beings cope with extreme circumstances and the way children in particular can demonstrate remarkable resilience I Hunt Killers sets up a fascinating scenario showing how both environment and biology can contribute to certain conditioned responses and behaviors and how an innate sense of human decency might be strong enough to overcome even the worst of upbringings At least that s what Jazz keeps telling himself Because now that he suspects that a new serial killer is at work in his small town he s flashing back to memories that make him extremely uneasy Did he help kill someone he loved without knowing it Is he destined to follow in his father s footsteps What sets this novel apart from all the other paint by numbers mysteries is that Jazz is an incredibly complex believable character The book has been billed as Dexter for YA and it s an apt comparison Jazz is likable relatable and consumed by the idea that he may not be able to stop himself from doing harm to others The story itself is engaging with the masterfully detailed well researched criminology aspects related in an accessible way The book is also HILARIOUS from beginning to end I didn t expect to be laughing so much at a book about a possible serial killer in the making but it s impossible to resist the graveyard banter running through Jazz s seasoned offhand narrative Making a duplicate key from a wax impression was an extremely useful skill to have if you were the sort of person who liked invading other people s homes and killing them And later his best friend Howie earnestly asks him what his middle name is because he s sure that serial killers all have three names The choice to use humor to hook the reader into the story is brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed being in Jazz s conflicted and absurdly playful headDespite its humorous tone and exceptional writing however my guess is that this is going to be an extremely polarizing book Its refusal to look away from the often horrific nature of brutal crimes and twisted mind games will be shocking to readers who aren t used to these kinds of details Early in the book we re eased into some crimes because they re mostly told in past tense but the later scenes definitely escalate in tension and violence although I don t think they really cross the line in terms of being gratuitous rather than graphic If I had to uibble about anything I d say that Jazz s give and take relationship with the police is something readers will need to accept although their doubtful reliance upon him is portrayed in a fairly believable tone And as with all murder novels I wasn t particularly keen on the few scenes told from the killer s point of view But those things are really almost incidental when the writing is nearly pitch perfect in balancing ghoulish humor and a macabre subjectIt s so exciting to see YA that pushes boundaries in this way While I confess that I m a little uneasy about the idea of 13 year old being exposed to this sort of information I don t think the book contains too much explicit material that older teens or adults already haven t seen in other forms of entertainment I strongly urge readers to carefully consider whether this is a subject that they want to read about however because this book certainly isn t for the faint of heart But for the right audience this thriller will hit all the right notes for an unforgettable reading experience Its dark disturbing and devilishly funny vibe is pure genius This review also appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisher Recommended for mature teens and adults onlyARC GiveawayIf you re intrigued by the sound of this book stay tuned We ll be giving away an advance readers copy next week on the blog
